Abstract: The field experiment was conducted during the rabi season. The experiment was conducted in randomized block design (RBD) with three replicated and chickpea, var. - K-468. The soil applied N at 20 kg N ha-1 alone or in combination with B, Mo or Fe significantly increased the number of pods per plant as compared to control. Maximum number of pod (25.77) was recorded treatment T5 and minimum pod number was found control (17.85). The application of nitrogen alone and in combination with micronutrients namely B, Mo and Fe significantly increased the grain yield as compared to control. Plots treatment T5 (20 kg N ha-1 + Fe @ 10 kg ha-1) produced significantly higher yield as compared to other treatments and minimum yield was recorded with control. All the treatments were able to significantly increase the stover yield as compared to control. The initial soil characteristics (table 2) in the experimental field of soil reaction (soil pH) were noticed neutral (pH 7.34). The physical and chemical conditions were conducive chickpea cultivation under nitrogen levels and micronutrients condition of cultivation practice
